This Vox Box included a sample size of Pantene’s weightless foam conditioner, a sample size of Crest gum detoxify toothpaste, a full sized Venus platinum razor with 1 refill, and 3 tiny 1 use foil samples of Olay whips moisturizer.
I had mixed feelings about the Pantene weightless foam conditioner. It was so weird to use a conditioner with a foam consistency but it was nice that it wasn’t slimy feeling like other conditioners when I was applying it or after I rinsed my hair off. When my hair was drying it started to frizz a lot so I started to regret using it. I always wash my hair at night so I slept on it. When I woke up this morning, the frizz was gone and my hair actually had a little added volume at the roots. I’m not really sure how the frizz dissipated but I am glad it did and it left me overall impressed with this product. I would definitely not recommend it if you are going to use it and go out with your hair air drying. You may experience some major frizz.
The Crest gum detoxifying toothpaste is a great product! It claims to penetrate hard to reach places to neutralize harmful plaque bacteria even around the gum line, for clinically proven healthier gums and prevent gingivitis! I obviously can’t prove that it does any of those things but my mouth did felt so fresh after brushing with this toothpaste and I love that it doesn’t have a super strong minty flavor. It’s a white paste and a subtle flavor, almost like the bubblemint kids toothpaste. I felt like this toothpaste did a really good job at deep cleaning! My mouth felt really fresh after brushing with this toothpaste.
The Venus platinum razor really impressed me. It has five blades and a water activated ribbon of moisture to protect from nicks. I have to say that that ribbon really does make a difference. I have always gotten little nicks on the back of my thighs when shaving as well as razor bumps when I shave. I used this razor last night and it was definitely a game changer. My legs are so smooth and I have zero nicks or irritation. I also love that this razor does not get clogged at all. It made shaving a breeze! I’m sure many of us can relate that no shave November often turns into barely shave until shorts season comes around again…
The Olay whips moisturizer is my least favorite product of the four of these. My face has been getting very dry since I implemented an exfoliating scrub into my facial routine. I am running out of my current moisturizer so I was really excited to try this out. I read a review for this moisturizer on Influenster and someone said they loved that this product was lightweight and not greasy. In my experience, that was the complete opposite of what I thought. This was actually really greasy going on. My face felt almost slimy after I applied it and my hair was sticking to it. It was a disaster and definitely won’t be my next moisturizer. When I heard this was going to be in my Vox Box, I was excited because I thought it was going to be a decent sized sample and was saddened to realize that the sample size was smaller than something you find in a magazine. Anyway, at this point I’m happy that I didn’t get a full size or deluxe sample because I am not a huge fan of this moisturizer. I have oily skin and don’t want the added grease in a moisturizer but this may work if you have very dry skin and need that extra oil.
Overall, I was happy to have the chance to review all of these products for all of you and will probably repurchase the toothpaste and buy some refills for the razor. I hope you all enjoyed reading the reviews of these products!
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
Until next time,
